Professor Ndjuoh MehChu will join the Seton Hall Law faculty in July 2020. He teaches in the areas of torts, civil rights, and critical race theory. Current research projects bring to bear legal realist claims about the interplay of power and oppression to explore the various ways institutions fail to implement rights-protective measures for marginalized groups.
Prior to joining the Law School, Professor MehChu was the inaugural Thurgood Marshall Law Teaching Fellow at Howard University School of Law. He was also a legal fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center, where he worked on issues related to criminal justice reform and children’s rights. Professor MehChu clerked for the Honorable Jack B. Weinstein on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
He holds a B.A. in Africana Studies with highest honors and a B.A. in economics from Rutgers University-New Brunswick, and is a graduate of the University of Chicago Law School.
“In my teaching and service at the Law School, my goal is to engage students to think critically about the work of lawyers as social engineers, meeting the pressing issues of our day. Collaborating with the dynamic law clinics on cutting edge projects—merging theory and practice—describes just one of the ways I intend to pursue this goal.”
